FAA Moving Forward to Enable Safe Integration of Drones

The Applicants' Drones Range From Five To 89 Pounds

The FAA published airworthiness criteria for the proposed certification of 10 different Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) or drones as special class aircraft. This is a crucial step to enabling more complex drone operations beyond what is allowed under the small unmanned aircraft rule (Part 107), including package delivery. "The development of airworthy, durable, and reliable unmanned aircraft is a crucial step forward for this innovative sector," said Dr. Michael C. Romanowski, director of Aircraft Certification Service Policy and Innovation. "Type certification will help increase both public and regulatory confidence in drone technology as operations become more advanced."

The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) AD 2019-08-13 for Textron Aviation, Inc., (type certificate previously held by Cessna Aircraft Company) Models 525, 525A, and 525B airplanes with Tamarack Aerospace Group (Tamarack) active load alleviation system (ATLAS) winglets installed in accordance with Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SA03842NY. AD 2019-08-13 was prompted by mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as malfunction of the ATLAS. This AD results from the identification of corrective actions that, if implemented, allow operators to reactivate the ATLAS and restore operations to normal procedures. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective December 28, 2020.
